Double Duty Shelves – A Dorm Room Must Have

Sure you’ve got plenty of books to store, but when it comes to decorating a dorm or apartment having furniture that can do double duty is a must! Bookshelves are a versatile storage choice that make it easy to find furniture that has two functions in one.

Madison 6 Section Storage Rack – Rolling

Shelving that is easy to move, like the Madison 6 Section Storage Rack – Rolling makes it easy to rearrange furniture. That means this shelf can be placed at the foot of the bed one day and used as a room divider the next.

Make your nightstand into a bookshelf as well and you’ll always have required reading close at hand. The Modlife Lucerne Modular Shelf has a compact design that allows this shelf to grow with your book collection, but is also compact enough to use as a nightstand.

Add visual interest to any room with the 4-Tier A-Frame Shelf. This shelf is the perfect place to store books or display photos. The open design gives this bookshelf an airy feel, perfect for a smaller room where you don’t want to have heavy pieces of furniture to take over the room. This short bookshelf can also be used for media storage, simply place a flat screen TV on the top shelf!

Need a place to toss your keys by the front door? Add the X-Text Bookcase to the entryway and use the top as an entry table while the shelves below can be used to store books. With a modern, streamlined look this shelf is another light and airy option ideal for a compact space.

Bookshelves aren’t just for books. A shelf with built in baskets like the 4 Basket Storage Shelf provides concealed storage that comes in handy everywhere from the living room to the bathroom.

Any one of these shelves would be a great choice for adding storage to any space. Visit our back to school shopping guide for more dorm room essentials.
